Online QBank is poor quality, cards are decent.
on April 10, 2014
The other reviewers covered the cards pretty well. I'd like to address the 70 question qbank included with the set.
The questions are poor quality. Some of them have more than one correct answer. They purport to be "board style" but many of them are "which statement is false" type questions, which are not used on the boards. Sometimes choices can be ruled out because they directly contradict something in the question stem.
The software is poor quality. In exam mode, you can only get feedback on the answer choice you selected. This is useless when the correct answer has the explanation and the incorrect one you selected only says "incorrect." It doesn't keep track of which questions you've seen, so expect repeats if you don't do it all in one 70 question block. You have to scroll through a tiny window to read the question and scroll through a second tiny window to read the feedback, which, again, is sometimes useless.
I used all my USMLEWorld micro questions and I was looking forward to supplementing them with these. It turned out to be a waste of time.
